was honored to work with that group, along with senator pryor and senator schumer, with senator barrasso, senator alexander and our former colleague, senator kyl, and we sat for hours debating. it was very educational for me, mr. president, because i would listen to the concerns of my republican colleagues, and it was a lot different than what i heard in the democratic caucus, and i think we both learned a lot from each other but there was general agreement that there was a real problem in the operations of the united states senate, and that we owed an obligation to take a look at our rules and see whether we couldn't modify the rules so that we can do the type of deliberation, debate and voting that's expected of the united states senate. one of the problems that became very apparent to all of us is that individual senators are able to block the consideration of amendments and bills on the floor of the senate indefinitely, and that's wrong. my colleague from arizona pointed out that you could be in your home state and offer an objection, a bill could be brought to a standstill. that's n

rounds, senator chuck schumer of new york said he will reintroduce legislation over background checks in the number of weeks. in the house, congressman rosa and raul of arizona put forward a bill that would give gun owners a $1,000 a year tax credit for each of two years for turning in assault rifles to state police, none of these are expected to pass of republican controlled house. president obama's address triggered a scathing response from the national rifle association, the leader, rain lapierre, said that president made a mockery of our constitutional rights. >> they are god-given freedoms they belong to us, in the united states of america as our birth right, no government gave them to us, no government can ever take them away. lou: lapierre argued only reason that federal government would want to create a list of gun owners is to quote, tax them or takes them. our next guest is a texas gun shol owneshopowner who is now ca boycott of groupon, after the site canceled his dial for a concealed handgun training course, he said that groupon seems to e8 to to e88ing anyoneo believes in

as new york senator chuck schumer put it. it might be something that people could everyone agree to get that done. i think that's what a lot of political experts are looking at to see if that's the one thing to get passed congress. >> looking at the strategy for those that want gun control legislation following newtown, what we're witnessing really is in a sense the game plan that was announced. and i hate referring to it as a game plan because this is for more serious than anything of that notion but when newtown happened, the president traveling and what he said and even the slight reference and the inaugural address at the beginning of this week and expecting in the state of the union this seems to be following this strategy and of course without the exclusion of the vice president's task force. >> well, and this does seem to be where newtown is different than the mass shootings of the past few years is the newtown shootings occurred in late december. we are in late january. it's been a full month or even longer than that month since then, tamron. the question is how long can this be

to have a senate budget has too often been described as just a minor procedural matter. senator schumer, who explained recently, said, well, the democrats did have a budget because there was a budget that came out of the sequester agreement in mid-2011. now, never mind that the senate hadn't had a budget that spring or the spring before that or that the parliamentarians said that the sequester deal wasn't a budget. somehow coming up with one number was supposedly good enough to be a budget. that's like if you sat around your kitchen table and had a discussion about how you're going to spend the money, here's how the discussion would go. "okay, i think we ought to spend x amount of money. that's the meeting. we've just decided that's what we're going to do." and that's somehow the budget? and particularly when x amount of money didn't relate at all to the amount of money coming into your family. nobody believes that would make sense. we'll see whether senator schumer's words this weekend will produce a budget. the house has acted. the president says he wants the debt ceiling increase. ho
